Looks like something from a science fiction cast of aliens. Awesome color.
What a character he is!! Great shot!! :)
Love this photo.. They are so amazing. We had a father with his chicks in our rain forest and you can see them at the beach at Ella Bay sometimes.. Like this one.. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/616...
Nice photo.I only saw one in the wild, Shari. And it was deep in the trees. Trying to get a picture seemed pointless.
no this one was in captivity. In Australia you have to go to north Queensland to find them in the wild and even then they are rare to come across unless you are with the right people. They aren't that common in the wild any more. They can be aggressive, they have extremely powerful legs and claws that could make your insides your outsides very quickly! But still they are a fascinating bird. They remind me a lot of a dinosaur...
